  1. TM Web-EnablingState Wildlife Action PlansBusiness Processesand Technical Tools

  2. Overview of this Presentation • CMP Open Standards & Adaptive Management • Applying the Open Standards to CA SWAP Revision • Biz Processes and IT Tools Required to Web Enable SWAP Revisions

  3. About Foundations of Success Our Structure • Non-profit organization Our Mission • To improve the practice of conservation Our Strategy • Work with practitioners of all kinds to improve the design, management, monitoring, and learning from conservation projects and programs We don’t implement conservation projects, we make our partners’ conservation projects better!

  4. The Conservation Measures Partnership:Leading Conservation Organizations

  5. Wildlife & Habitat ConservationProjects Come In All Shapes and Sizes • Managing a wildlife refuge • A State Wildlife Grant (SWG)-funded action • A range-wide management plan for the Reddish Egret • Revisions to a State Wildlife Action Plan

  6. Research On Over 220 MeasuresSystems in Different Fields

  7. Business & ManagementFamily Tree

  8. Need to Integrate Measuring Effectivenessinto an Iterative Project Cycle

  9. Status Question:How are Species and Ecosystems Doing? ?

  10. Effectiveness Question:Are Our Actions Leading to Desired Results? ?

  11. Similar Concepts, Different Words

  12. Conservation Measures Partnership’s Open Standards • Developed by leading orgs & agencies • Draws on many fields • Open source & common language • Used around the world • Lakes Ontario & Huron • State Wildlife Agencies • Swedish National Parks • Donor Funding Programs • Academic Training

  13. The Open Standards for the Practice of Conservation

  14. Overview of this Presentation • CMP Open Standards & Adaptive Management • Applying the Open Standards to CA SWAP Revision

  15. California DFW Using Open Standards toRevise State Wildlife Action Plan

  16. Define Project Scope:A Focus on Key Planning Units Step 1 • ~30 Terrestrial Ecoregions • ~20 HUC 4s for Freshwater • ~5 Marine Study Regions

  17. Define Who is OnYour Project Team Step 1 SWAP Management Team Technical Team Terrestrial/Aquatic/Marine Teams (with outside stakeholders) Public Review

  18. Develop Conceptual ModelOf Your System Step 1

  19. Develop Conceptual ModelOf Your System Step 1

  20. Develop Conceptual ModelOf Your System Step 1

  21. Develop Conceptual ModelOf Your System Step 1

  22. Develop Conceptual ModelOf Your System Step 1

  23. Develop Conceptual ModelOf Your System Step 1

  24. Need to Ensure Standard“Roll-Upable” Terms Across Units Step 1

  25. Plan Actions and Monitoring Step 2

  26. Implement Actions & Monitoring Step 3 Just Do It!

  27. Analyze, Use, Adapt:Think About Key Questions Step 4 Examples of Key Questions that CDFW Folks Have Identified: Search and Query - All projects that have mountain lion as a target Progress Reports - All projects that are behind schedule for monitoring Frequency Analyses - Logging is a high rated threat in 12 out of 20 ecoregions (60%) Descriptive & Comparative Stats - The average mountain lion pop is 30 ± 7 individuals Summative Analyses - See summary of objectives example

  28. Capture & Share Learning:Start with Desired End Report Step 5

  29. Timeline for OverallRevision Process

  30. Timeline for OverallRevision Process

  31. Key Lessons from CaliforniaSWAPRevision Process Training in Open Standards Required • Find a few “power-users” to guide others Big decisions for SWAP (and database) • Geographic units • Targets (systems-level vs SGCN) • Taxonomies (authority tables) • Level of detail Needed to pilot test the process Need data systems to roll-up individual Miradi files and enforce standardization across units

  32. Overview of this Presentation • CMP Open Standards & Adaptive Management • Applying the Open Standards to CA SWAP Revision • Biz Processes and IT Tools Required to Web Enable SWAP Revisions

  33. What Processes and IT ToolsAre Needed to Web Enable SWAP Revisions? • Common biz processes across key units

  34. CMP Open Standards One Exampleof a Common Biz Process • ~30 Terrestrial Ecoregions • ~20 HUC 4s for Freshwater • ~5 Marine Study Regions

  35. What Processes and IT ToolsAre Needed to Web Enable SWAP Revisions? • Common biz processes across key units • Relevant training and outreach tools

  36. Guidance and Training to Supportthe Open Standards

  37. What Processes and IT ToolsAre Needed to Web Enable SWAP Revisions? • Common biz processes across key units • Relevant training and outreach tools • Standard nomenclature & indicators

  38. We Need Standard Terms to Describe Conservation • Cows? • Cattle? • Livestock? • Grazing? • Ranching?

  39. Two Independent SystemsHave Now Been Unified CMPTaxonomies IUCN Red ListAuthority Files Unified GlobalClassifications

  40. Classifications are Now “Peer Reviewed” Global Standard

  41. Measuring the Effectiveness of State Wildlife Grants and Wildlife Action Plans

  42. List of Actions Land Protection Data Collection/Surveys Outreach to Key Resource Users Species Restoration Management Planning Create New Habitat/Natural Processes Conservation Area Designation Training and Technical Assistance Land Use Planning Environmental Review Direct Management

  43. Species Restoration Definition of Action Examples “Generic” Results Chain Std Objectives Std Measures

  44. Measures Collection

  46. What Processes and IT ToolsAre Needed to Web Enable SWAP Revisions? • Common biz processes across key units • Relevant training and outreach tools • Standard nomenclature& indicators • Software guidance & standard data collection

  47. CMP The Conservation Measures Partnership FOS, CMP & Benetech CreateMiradi Desktop Software TM Adaptive Management Software for Conservation Projects

  48. “Turbo Tax” for Conservation

  49. Step-by-Step Interview

  50. Miradi Enables Standard Data Collection For Individual Projects
